The holiday season is here! #JustinGuitarHolidays

It's time for our annual giveaway -  get ready for some action and awe$ome prizes. :)
Hey, how you doing? Justin here.

I'm a bit late with this, but y'all know: it's been an insane year! I've got lots of exciting new stuff going on – a new songbook, fully rebuilding this website, the app, the studio...

But it's super cool that #JustinGuitarHolidays is finally out, and I think it's pretty fun. We'll get to spend some more time together, and I'll try to give back a bit of the joy y'all always give to me! ;) The giveaway is worldwide – you're welcome to join no matter where you are in the world. I'll do my best to have your prize shipped as early as possible. 2020 has been more like an F-chord than an Em to most people, but I hope to help spread the joy of music around the world. Even if it's just a bit. :)

Guitar Pro, Andertons Music Co., and much more!
So we've gone wild this year, and between November 25th and January 13th, we're running a bunch of cool sweepstakes and competitions. I think there's something for each one of you, no matter your skill level, how much free time you have, or your personality...

I've partnered up with GuitarPro, Andertons, D'Addario, Boss, and other industry friends. We got cool gifts for you, and there are MANY ways you can win! Full Guitar Pro licenses, awesome pedals, ukulele, and exclusive lessons with me are some of the prizes you can try! :) Check this post for a summary, or keep reading to learn more.

Most of the contests are happening on my Instagram and Forum Community. I'll also pop up some stuff on my Facebook – and there's a REAL cool thing coming for the Beginner App as well. Make sure you're following me, and the notifications for my profile are on so you won't miss anything!

Let's make music together!
The #JustinGuitarHolidays will be a cool way to have fun together! I'll have the chance to check a bit closer how some of you are doing on your guitar journey, which is always inspiring. I really enjoy giving private classes!

Anyway, I want you to feel WELCOME to join us. The idea of these 'competitions' is not to judge your skill but to have fun and maybe learn a bit more along the process.

I wish y'all an AWESOME holiday season and good luck with the giveaway!

I hope to inspire you to share your guitar story and love within our cool global community. :)

Cheers, Justin.

Ready to have some fun and win awe$ome prizes?
Let me show you how you'll be able to join and what you can win!

Xmas Song - Change the lyrics!

I hope you don't turn your notifications off! I've been playing around with some XMAS songs and got an idea.

Stay tuned. :)

The follower with the best original comment on each social will win a Tone City pedal (Andertons) + Play Guitar Hits (1-month free access) + surprise prize (£80 value).

I'm not conversant with Instagram and want to enter the competition for PMT registered students. I assume I send a message to justinguitar with the tag #JustinGuitarMusicTheory but I don't see how to attach the video I've created?

I don't use Instagram myself.
Can anyone help Willsie?
This one is open until 9th Jan.

I think you can only add video through a mobile device.
You can log in to your instragram from a mac or pc as well but I don't think you can add pics or video that way.


You should :
  • install the instagram app on a mobile device
  • Get your video on that device somehow (as a movie clip in your phone pictures). Ex: dropbox, google drive etc..
  • upload the video through the mobile app on your phone
  • To upload the video, on your Instagram's main page (on your profile), there's a + icon.
    You have to select 'post' and choose the video from your phone'
  • Don't forget to add the hashtag #JustinGuitarMusicTheory in the text part of your post!

Thanks! I sat in front of my Mac for about an hour trying to figure out how to do it. I’ll transfer to my mobile tomorrow and try again.

Edited:

I've just worked out that I'm able to upload a video to my Instagram account on my laptop as well as a mobile device. Both ways end up with the video being located in an Instagram service called IGTV. A separate app, but accessible in Instagram, developed by them to handle videos longer than 60 seconds, which mine is. Thing is my video entry is there publicly in IGTV but I don't know how I can enter it to competition?

Edited:
Think I can see how to do it. I'll try tomorrow.

I thought that sending my video to Justin on Instagram was private but I just got a comment on it from my daughter in law's mother! How embarrassing!  :-[

Perks of instagram, that is something that has put me off a bit since I am a bit shy to show myself out to some of my distant friends that are following me. But I am sure it wasn't embarassing, it's just the feeling mate :)
